Perhaps. But from the discussion so far it looks like the ill-advised is
the route they want to take.
This route may...may...reduce the problems at first to a more treatable
level, though. At first. As long as it's done behind firewalls of some
sort until updates and AV can be installed.It would still be best to
format the entire drive, which can't be done if you run the installer
files from the drive you're installing to...so copy the files elsewhere
first, like a CD.
